When we examine the lineage of Warren Hull, we find that he is descended from the immigrant, George Hull, who came to the colonies from England in the early 1630’s. Warren and his father served the country as soldiers during the Revolutionary War. Soon after Warren had settled in Western New York, the War of 1812 was fought in and around the area. In 1825, the Erie Canal was completed, drastically changing the economy across New York State. The abolitionist movement and the Civil War engaged Hull family members in the middle of the century. While Hull family members were part of these dramatic historic events, they also contributed to their communities in more ordinary ways as farmers, teachers, attorneys, printers, artists, business owners and church and government leaders. All of these events and contributions are part of the Hull Family stories, which are imparted to visitors in a variety of events and programs at the site.
